When do we include H2O and when do we exclude it from the ice table

You don't include H2O if it is in solid or liquid form. Solids and liquids are not counted in ICE tables.

Solids and liquids are not factored into the calculations for equilibrium constants (and therefore in ICE tables) because their concentrations are not changing.

If H2O is in the gaseous form, it should be included. But if it's in the liquid or solid form, then it doesn't need to be included.

H2O is usually in liquid form, and liquids and solids are not included in ICE tables.

You don't include any reactant or product in the liquid of solid form when writing out the equation, including H2O.

H2O should only be included if its in gaseous {H2O(g)} form.

You don't include water into your ice table because it's a liquid and when writing the equilibrium constants out, you disregard the liquids.

You never include solids or liquids in the ICE table or equilibrium constants. If it's gaseous or aqueous, then it's included. In the case of H2O, the only time you would include it is if it's H2O(g).
